Trust and Critical Reasoning Online-only friends can never be considered completely trustworthy. Even if someone seems friendly and tells you about themselves, you should remember that you are still talking to a stranger and think carefully about the information you share with them.
Reputation and Identity Some people use photos or choose avatars that represent their true identity; but others may use/choose something very different to their true self. Always remember that a person you are chatting to online may not be who they say they are.
Reputation and Identity The internet allows people to act differently to how they would offline. Some people might do things online that they know are wrong but they think they can get away with because it is online.
